4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: Not cheap, but a bargain in comparison with other schools. The education is complete and more product goes through the hands of a student than any other school that I am aware of. This information comes from friends and network associates who have shared their experiences with me.

4 College Junior

Career Services at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: I do not have personal experience with this...yet. However, I know those that have and all report great experiences. The only negative responses I have heard were from those same people who did not apply themselves at the school, and who think it is ok to not show up for work when scheduled. Really?

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: The only thing is missing are weekend classes. There are 4 different time periods throughout a day one can take classes, including evening classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: I am VERY satisfied and thankful for having this opportunity and the Le Cordon Bleu name on my resume!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: All the chefs are professionals, although there are the occasional personality conflicts, these are challenges you will face in the industry also. If one thinks that you can avoid all challenges and personality issues, you are only deceiving yourself. Don't let others determine your attitude nor your success or failure. You are the Captain of your ship, steer it where it needs to go and only take in those things that really are for your betterment. Accept the challenge and only those criticisms that will make you better, to reach higher, and make you a better performer! No one else can determine your future or success unless you give them that authority!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: Most of my issues were due to having to work through the VA system.

3 College Junior

Student Body at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: Here is the "weak-link" in the program. There are students who are coming straight from High school, some with real motivation some without. Not to say that they are the only challenges, there are older more "mature" adults who attend that think they don't have to put in any effort and should be spoon-fed their degree or certification. These are the biggest challenge for me. They are not the majority, they are only the loud! Most students are focused, hard working, professionals and it shows in their work and in their attitudes. My view may be a little skewed too since I spent 22 years in military special operations groups where this type of attitude challenges were extremely rare and dealt with immediately. But, I was asked for my opinion.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: Although it is not cheap by any means, it is definitely worth the investment. As I stated before, there are others with an equal reputation where one will have less product to use and three-times the expense!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: I would give it 5-stars, but some of the programs are going through revamping so it would be wrong to say they are perfect. I have enjoyed all of my instructors, including the General Educational instructors. They have always made themselves available for extra training or just needed help. The Student Resource Center (SRC) has tutoring programs that cover almost, if not all, programs, including knife skills, NEHA Cert, Math, English, Speech, Psychology and other programs where students need assistance. Those who have reported their experience with the tutoring program have been extremely supporting and satisfied with the improvements they have developed with the extra help.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: I researched several culinary schools and found that for the return on investment, Le Cordon Bleu is by far the best investment in my culinary future. They provide more production, more hands-on instruction, and more product going through the hands of a student than many of the more expensive schools out there. The investment can be less than a third of other schools that provide much less. And, all of the instructors have been successful in many facets of the culinary industry, including owning their own restaurants, catering services and baking and pastry shops. We also have 2 Master chefs in our program. CMC Daryl Shular is the Executive Chef in charge of education, the first African American to be certified by the American Culinary Federation, as well as Chef John Kanadu, who is a German Master Chef who developed the Cross Cultures Culinary program for Atlanta. There is a plethora of talent and training here.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: They have a Student Resource Center where many issues students are facing can be resolved or sources can be found. Although they do not have student dorms, they do have community contacts that work to help find affordable housing for students. You cannot depend on the staff to do the footwork for you, but they will provide the resources to keep you from going it blindly. One should not come to the school without a job, somewhere to live, or a vehicle or transportation plans. They can assist you, but they cannot provide housing, income, or transportation, they can only refer you to community resources who may be able to assist.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Atlanta: My adviser is very helpful and informative. My teacher makes it interesting to learn. the students are friendly and easy to talk to. The campus is not too far from my house so I always arrive early for class.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Pasadena: I have morning classes so I am able to spend the rest of my day doing whatever I want, and also if I decide to transfer to another Le Cordon Bleu then I can and I would also be able to pick up where I left off.

Overall Experience at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Pasadena: I value a degree from this school because it shows that I am knowledgeable in this specific area and since I am from this school I have a better rate at gaining employment with top restaurants and bakeries.

1 College Junior

Online Courses at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Pasadena: I have not taken online courses at Le Cordon Bleu but with previous experience I despised it. I am a hands on person so this type of environment did not work for me and it is really hard to get access to the teacher at all times.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Pasadena: The tuition for this school is basically the same for any college but once you are applied to this school they have many opportunities to earn grants and loans to help with the financial aspect for applying.

5 College Junior

Career Services at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts - Pasadena: In my school we have teachers who are still in the current baking industry so they can tell us more about the real world in the baking industry. Also our school has connections to well known restaurants so they will ease us into that path.
